Asya Shklyar has worked in IT for over 20 years and is passionate about technology that has the potential to improve human lives. Lately it is everything that has to do with data science and new mediums, like Virtual and Augmented Reality. Asya has worked mostly in Life Sciences, building research infrastructures and connecting scientists and IT. The last 3 years Asya spent at Pomona College, helping establish a local research infrastructure and a technology exploration lab for undergraduates. Blockchain, crypto and now NFTs were on the periphery but when the Media Studies students needed a hands-on project, the time was right to jump in.

Her “In The Know Lab” specializes in teaching students how to use VR equipment
